Good luck on finding a local repair shop. Don't take my word for it, but if the distance that you have to drive to a shop is less than 5 miles (and without too much stop and go traffic), you might be able to drive there without overheating the engine and safe the expensive cost of a tow. You know how to monitor the engine temperature through the hidden board computer?

I would discourage you to tow the car with another car. Bear in mind that the steering is heavy, very heavy, and the brakes as well. Feels like you have to step on the brake with both feet to get the car to stop... So only tow at very low speed over very low distance.
